State track results

Senior Riley Schmieder and sophomore Drake Brezina completed their track and field seasons at the state meet Thursday afternoon.  Schmieder capped off a noteworthy high school track career by medaling in the 3000 meter run with a seventh place finish.  Her time of 11:18.35 is ten seconds better than her previous season best time which was recorded at the state qualifier meet one week earlier.  “Riley’s high school track career is a great example of what a little bit of talent and a great deal of work can accomplish.”  Brezina jumped 19 feet 3.5 inches on his second jump of the day.  This was his second best jump ever and placed him eighteenth among the twenty-four competitors.  “Drake is a great jumper and middle distance runner.  I think we will be seeing more of his remarkable feats in the future.”
